Skoda’s big second-generation Superb could at last be coming in for retirement, to be replaced by a sleek new concept-inspired sedan.

A new teaser sketch has surfaced in the Chinese press this week, hinting at a large four-door coupe clearly inspired by the mean green VisionC concept shown at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.

The VisionC’s aggressive headlight design has disappeared, although it is clear that the concept’s styling has influenced this latest sketch.

Design elements from the Czech brand’s latest models can also be seen in this sketch, including the new Octavia’s squared-off lights and the bold new grille design now worn by almost every Skoda model.

But is this truly a replacement for the Superb? Skoda isn’t saying, but with parent Volkswagen reportedly working to give the brand a more upmarket feel, the VisionC’s four-door coupe design could be just the ticket.

A sweeping profile would diminish the car’s practicality however, suggesting we could see Skoda take its cue from the VW Passat, offering both a sedan (liftback in Skoda’s case) and a more lifestyle-focused ‘Superb CC’.

A wagon model would likely also feature in the new Superb range, with the body shape continuing to be among the more popular styles preferred by European buyers.

Whatever its looks, expect the next Superb to utilise the same MQB platform that underpins the new Octavia and the next-generation Passat (among other VW models).

Engines will likewise be shared with the Passat, including Volkswagen’s new 176kW/500Nm 2.0 litre four-cylinder twin-turbo diesel.

Volkswagen’s new 10-speed DSG auto could also appear in the new Superb.

With the current (and recently facelifted) Superb now into its sixth year on the market expect details and spy photos to surface over the next 12 months.
